The 2015 Picture Plymouth photo contest has come to a close and the results are in! Many thanks to our loyal readers who participate in the photo contest by submitting their beautiful snapshots of our community, and by voting online for the Reader's Choice award.

The contest includes two different awards:

  • Juried panel: A panel of judges chooses a winner in each of five categories (Wildlife & Nature, Activities & Events, City Landmarks, People & Families, and Pets). We include runners up as the number and quality of photos allow. We also choose an overall winner for the contest.
  • Readers’ choice: Readers vote online for their overall favorite photo.
